Fun Find: Star Wars Dark Chocolate Bar at The Ganachery in Disney Springs

When The Ganachery – Disney’s own specialty chocolate shop – opened nearly one month ago in Disney Springs, it was impossible not to notice that this little chocolate boutique had a unique vibe all its own. (Take a full tour of the spot here!)

Dining in Disneyland: The Candy Cane Marshmallow Wand

Lately I’ve been a big fan of Disney Marshmallow Wands.  Fresh marshmallows dipped in gooey caramel, covered with chocolate then topped with various items: YUM!

In the past we’ve seen lots of fun marshmallow wands.  Everything from traditional sprinkles, to Reese’s Pieces, s’mores, character themed, and more.  The Candy Cane Marshmallow Wand is currently here for the season, and it’s wonderful!  I recently picked one up to enjoy at home and boy, am I glad I did.

Dining in Disneyland: The Mickey Coconut Pattie

Perusing the goodie case at Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure, I stumbled across something that could potentially be a new favorite treat.

I’m a huge fan of coconut and I love Mounds and Almond Joy candy bars (they are the first to be stolen from my kids at Halloween), so I figured I’d better check out the new “Mickey Coconut Pattie.”

I’m not sure why the treat is called a “Mickey” Coconut Pattie, because in no way does it resemble Mickey.  It’s a big circle; no ears!

Anyhow, I will forgive Disney for this due to the fact that that it tastes amazing.  The Mickey Coconut Pattie is $3.99 and is very generously portioned. Plenty big for sharing — or if you don’t want to share, it’s a great treat for eating a bit and saving the rest for later!
